"Beautiful Bonsai"

"A spring hike to Fenella hut in the Kahurangi's Cobb Valley  delivered a welcome surprise - fresh snow! It had started earlier in the day at much lower altitude in the valley, so by the time I reached this river as I neared the hut, it was coming thick & fast. This south island beech tree made a beautiful statement, imitating a Japanese bonsai & I struggled to lean back far enough on the bridge to get it all in (there was no way I was going to start shooting multiple images together in this weather!) Click on the image below to show a short video, it was quite a sight!"
